NetgearDG834G router won't accept new settings

I have recently had trouble logging into my Netgear DG834G router via an Apple Mac G4. My other G5 mac's had no problem. I reset the router to the default settings and now it won't accept a new password. The region constantly defaults back to United States. It works fine without a password for all my mac's now but I have an unprotected network. Anyone any ideas?

    The router does this automatically, and says it is up to date?

Have lost the the security code they gave us when the router was changed. how do we find it or change it. the router is netgear DG834G it won`t let us log on any more lap top without the code


Before resetting the router, please try the user name 'admin' with the password 'password' or '1234'. These are the default user name and passwords for Netgear routers. If neither of these work, there is a small black button on the back of the router with 'Reset' written by it. Press this down and hold it for approximately 40 seconds, or until you see the lights blink on the front. Now you can access the router via your web browser using the default settings. All settings will need to be reinserted into the router. I will post a How-To on how to do that today.

Good Luck,

I use a netgearDG834g router. I need to adjust the NAT settings so that my son can use his XBox. I have forgotten the netgear login and password. Can i start from scratch by using hte factory reset button...


If you reset your router you will need to reconfigure all the setting, like broadband username and password, as well as wep/wpa/tkip keys for wireless security. Once this is all done you need to allow the port through the firewall, but you have to specify the destination ip address of the XBox as server address in the inbound rule of the firewall. It will then do a port address translation from outside ip address to inside XBox address only for traffic destined to that port specified in the firewall entry.

I dont know how to connect a netgear DG834G


No software needed for Mac or PC. You do need an ASDL account name and password.
Your ISP should provide you with this info.

Connect with an ethernet cable any port on the unit to your computer network socket.

fire up a web browser and use the url:

http://192.168.0.1

This gives you the login screen.

use
admin

as the login name and

password

as the password. If unit is second hand then reset to factory defaults by using a paper clip in the reset point on the rear of the unit (between the 4 ethernet ports and the asdl port)

You are then able to set up the router.

exact usermanual depends on which model version you have. (see label on base)

see this page and choose your exact model for full manual.

Have lost/can't remember the security code to wirelessly connect to my netgear DG 834G


Paul.

Can you connect to the router via ethernet?

If so assuming you havent changed the routers address connecting to 192.168.0.1 from your web browser should get you into your routers admin page.

Once you have entered the user name and password click the Wireless link from teh main menu where you will be able to see the relevent key and or change it if required.

If you need the manuals you can download from here.

Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi


After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.


To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
